    Yes you need to do the Doooooooo,
    The spring is too short I just did mine last month, replaced the spring and the adjuster.....you might as well do the adjuster at the same time as the spring as the genuine adjuster is not as well made as the aftermarket replacement.
    also grease your swing arm bearings and steering head bearings.
    Fit HID lighting kit, 0.30" shim under the carburettor needle and a 150 main jet.
    Apart from that the 08 KLR is a nice bike.
    cheers

    just buy ,do it and enjoy it ,it 's hardly stripping it ,lets just say its a bit like the pimple on your girlfriends arse ,could be fine, but maybe it might turn in a melonoma but you can solve both those problems, this is the sort of fun you can have on a klr

    Same here, I have no plains to do the doo either. HID's would be nice but the stock lights are better than most as is, The only thing you really Need to do is de-restrict it

    The three above I took at Prudhoe Bay, Alaska about 10pm in June 2006. The bloke in the last shot had finished his ride up from Ushuaia in Argentina.

    Hi Davo,

    I must say I didn't ride a bike to Prudhoe Bay, we drove up the Haul Road in a 8 seater van (minibus) from Fairbanks. I would have liked too though:D

    Surreal in Summer, but I couldn't take the winters!

    The night that we stayed at the Arctic Caribou Inn there were also a couple of BigStroms and a couple of GS's, so it's getting to be a very regular trip these days, speaking to the Hotel owner he told me that then about 10 or so years back they would have had maybe 6 bikes for the season.
